06 March 2016

15 consultancies submit offers for role to develop $27bn green energy strategy

Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (Dewa) has received 15 bids for the contract to provide consultancy services for the development of the planned AED100bn ($27bn) Clean Energy Strategy.

The prices were received on 28 February.

There was quite a wide difference between the bids, with the low bid being AED2.7m and the highest bid coming in at AED7.4m.

The low bid was submitted by US-based Tetra Tech International. This was about 3 per cent lower than the second-lowest bid of AED2.79m, submitted by the local office of the US’ Protiviti.

Netherlands-based KPMG submitted the third-lowest price of AED2.988m, which was followed closely by a AED2.995m bid from US-based Navigant Consulting.

Dewa has also invited consultancies to submit bids for the contract to develop a strategy and deployment plan for a planned green free zone, which forms part of the Clean Energy Strategy. The strategy was launched in November by Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum.

The new free zone will be called Dubai Green Zone, and is planned to attract both established and emerging companies in the clean energy sector.

The emirate wants to generate 7 per cent of its energy from clean energy sources by 2020, raising it to 25 per cent in 2030 and 75 per cent in 2050.
